Championship Mindset by Alan Stein

by Alan Stein


“I always visualized my success. The process of seeing success before it happened put me in a positive frame of mind and prepared me to play the game.”

-        Michael Jordan

“Being in the zone means a higher state of concentration. When you let your mind wander, you make mistakes.  When you start thinking about bad things that have happened, or good things that could happen, your focus isn’t where it should be – on this play, right here, right now.”

-        Joe Montana

Here is some wisdom from my friend and colleague, Graham Betchart (performance coach who specializes in mental skills training). For more on Graham, check out

  • Believe in yourselflove your talent

  • Mentally prepare for competitioncreate a consistent pre-game routine

I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains. 
If you know of any please share. Thanks!

Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect  
against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any recommendations?

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly  
enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but  
I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers? 
I'd genuinely appreciate it.

I'm not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading  
extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it  
a problem on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. 
Does running a well-established website like yours take a  
lot of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal every  
day. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online. 
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips  
for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
